Our float cabin home was built by our good friend John back in 1997. That was before the moratorium on the number of cabins on Powell Lake. That happened in 1999. It was also before BC water leases which came in 2002. Back in '97, you could put your cabin anywhere you liked, and move it liked.
Our friend James compiled a YouTube video of photos from those early years. We're known as Cabin #3, the third float cabin that John built. It's also in its third location, first Chippewa Bay (too rough), Goat Island (too exposed), and finally Hole int he Wall (just right).
John built our float by stitching 40' cedar logs together with steel cable and railroad spikes. That takes sewing to a new height. The deck came next and then the cabin on top.
James also created a YouTube video showing this process step by step.
Thanks James for both of these great videos. -- Margy
